Billie Eilish, the 21-year-old pop sensation, has revealed some intimate details about her identity and sexuality in a candid interview for Variety’s The Power of Women issue. The singer, who has faced constant scrutiny over her body and personal life, said she has never felt like a woman or desirable, and that she is attracted to women as people.
Eilish, who is known for her distinctive style of wearing baggy clothes that hide her figure, said she has always struggled with her looks and femininity. “I’ve never felt like a woman, to be honest with you. I’ve never felt desirable. I’ve never felt feminine,” she told Variety. “I have to convince myself that I’m, like, a pretty girl.” She added that she identifies as “she/her”, but she has never really felt like a girl.
The Grammy winner also admitted that she feels intimidated by other women and their beauty, even though she is attracted to them. “I love [women] so much. I love them as people. I’m attracted to them as people. I’m attracted to them for real,” she said. “I have deep connections with women in my life, the friends in my life, the family in my life. I’m physically attracted to them. But I’m also so intimidated by them and their beauty and their presence.”
Billie Eilish Dating History
Billie Eilish, who has been relatively private about her personal life, said she finds the media and public interest in her sexuality and dating history “weird and upsetting”. She was last linked to Jesse Rutherford, the lead singer of the band The Neighbourhood, but they broke up in May after eight months of dating. Before that, she dated actor Matthew Tyler Vorce for a year, and rapper Brandon Adams, who goes by the stage name 7:AMP, for a few months. She opened up about her relationship with Adams in her Apple TV+ documentary Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry.
The “Bad Guy” singer has previously expressed her frustration with the way people have speculated about her sexuality based on her style and music. In a 2021 interview with Elle, she said, “Or my sexuality! Like, oh yeah, that’s everyone else’s business, right? No. Where’s that energy with men?” She continued, “I just wanted to make a song once, and then I kept making songs. I never said, ‘Hey, pay attention to my life.’”
